growth for periods up to 45 years. and the difference compared to redevelopment is property taxes are divided into a number of recipients the state gets a property tax dollar and the remaining $0.10 is divided up between the school district and community college district. and under an infrastructure financing district typically the only increment that can be captured is the $0.65. you can't capture the money it goes to schools or to the community college district. so it's property taxes can be used to a finance infrastructure through bonds or on a pay as you go basis. the ports are structured a little bit differently. redevelopment focused on providing affordable housing. by state law 20 percent of the increment must be spent on parks, bay assess and the remove of bay fill. as you know there's significant historic contamination along the port property. so in 2005 is when we first went up to try to develop the tool and it was really based on the work that the director and cf o director did in the first 10 year capital plan. the plan says the structural financial plan is not in its

for having this hearing today. i'm going to focus on prop k in particular which is the half cent sales tax for transportation in san francisco. however, there are a lot of funding programs that are available to address pedestrian safety, and the challenge is how to balance the various opportunities to address it in a strategic manner. is there enough funding? no. but i think we have an opportunity with the strategy to figure out the ways to address the highest need areas in a strategic way. in the past there hasn't been a clear vision how to put together the program of projects so what we're looking for with the five year prioritization programs is moving in the right direction to link transportation investments and the efforts of the pedestrian safety task force with safety goals and prop k is flexible in that regard. it can fund basically all of the transportation infrastructure improvements that you heard discussed today. tomorrow you have continental walks and safe to routes program and next month curb signals and curb ramps. we leverage federal and state grants for all of these p

a year for the economy and job revenue and tax revenue and this improves night life in san francisco and entertainment in general even if it's not at night and ensure that venues act responsibly and this commission and staff can fulfill your charter mandated responsibility to regulate the industry appropriately. legislation has three broad aims. first it increases access to live music as well as dj music through improvements to the permitting process and the creation of new permits. it gives the commission and director better tools for bringing venues into compliance when they're not in compliance and has significant clean up and clarification language and we worked closely with the executive director to come up with those provisions. more specifically the legislation expands the limited live performance permit, llp, to include out door spaces like patios and courtyards and locations that currently cannot obtain this permit and the eagle tavern can't have music and had it for years before they shut down so we're creating a new ability for them and other venues to be able to have m
